In the figure,   AD = CD and AB = CB . 

(i) Prove that Line BD bisects angle  ADC (i.e. that line BD cuts angle  ADC into two equal angles).

(ii) Prove that Line AC and Line DB are perpendicular.

Since  AD  = CD

Then the angles opposite these sides are also equal

So angle DAC  = angle DCA

 

And if AB = CB, then the angles opposite thes sides are also equal

So angle CAB  = angle ACB

 

So angle DAC + angle CAB  = angle DCA + angle ACB

So angle DAB   = angle CDB

 

Then, by  SAS....triangle  DAB  = triangle DCB

 

Then angle ADB  = angle CDB.....so angle ADC is bisected

 

And angle  DAC  = angle DCA

AD = CD

And angle DAC  = angle DCA

So....by ASA....triangle EAD  = triangle   ECD

 

So angle AED  = angle CED

 

And, by Euclid.....a line standing upon a line that makes adjacent angles equal means that the lines are perpendicular....so AC  and Db are perpendicular
